TOKYO – One of the most unforgettable reasons an athlete has approached Dr. Randy Molo is gas.
“They complain a lot about the wind passing, mainly because it is something they ate [at the Athletes’ Village mess hall]”He said on Friday.
There is no problem here. After an issue about a member of the Philippines coaching staff testing positive for coronavirus, all is now well for Filipino athletes and officials here at the Tokyo Olympics.
“Everyone is healthy and so far we have had no problems,” said the delegation doctor.
Molo takes care of the day-to-day health and physical safety of athletes. In an Olympic Games where, as the president of the Philippine Olympic Committee, Representative Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino, said, the competitors have to worry about their enemy and a virus, Molo must make sure to keep the Philippine team in the best state of Health.
He also accompanies athletes during drug tests after competition.
Molo said the delegation has been updated on the current list of banned substances through a three-hour briefing, and everyone has been reminded of how to avoid COVID-19 infection and to be labeled as a close contact of those who could test positive for the coronavirus.
“Wear your mask, maintain social distance. If you have to speak unmasked, do so for less than 15 minutes and never in a closed area,” he said.
